What You Need To Know About Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Day
21 September as a statutory public holiday was previously known as Founders’ Day. However, the Government of Ghana has agreed to celebrate 4 August each year as Founders’ Day instead of or in addition to 21 September. The reason for this is that there were six main independence leaders, not just one. And many others contributed to securing Ghana’s freedom as well. This movement has succeeded, and the holiday on 21 September has now been officially renamed Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Day, with a new public holiday on 4 August added to the national calendar.
